Recovery time for an injured knee/shins
Just started running and I am into my 4th week of training for the GNR this year. I seem to has strained something just below the knee of my right leg. Unsure whether it is shin splints or just a pulled muscle around the knee.
I am keen to get back out as I am really enjoying it and seem to be making good progress but do not want to cause any long terms problems. Difficult question I know (given it depends on so many factors) but how long do you think I should wait before running again? It seems to hurt in the morning and I get the odd twinge during the day.
Any info is appreciated.
